    Anybody try this? I was just out shooting in 5F. Did not go well, lol. Not sure if the equipment behaves differently, the muscles are too tight, or the clothes too bulky but it was about the worst practice session I have ever had.:waaah: I think my new rule is going to have to be over 20F only.:(

    Going on a 3-day hunt in early January and It's likely to be cold(er). On my "bow" hand I think I'd like to wear a glove since I'll keep a grip on it all the time. My string hand I'll keep in a pocket mostly, so no issue I think. I'd prefer something a tad "grippy" I think. As opposed to...

    I purchased Max4 limbs several years ago because I wanted to support state side mfg. I have enjoyed the limbs although they are slower than my hex6s. Nice well made limbs. I eventually wanted to try Max6s so I bought a set #52 meds. I started out looking for the heaviest arrow I felt comfortable...

    snowing here, and 20*. But there is joy. I got a couple things in the mail. One is a riser I've had several of, Hoyt 19" Tracker warfed to ILF. Factory gold & black color, Loc Do warfed it several years ago, and I've owned it maybe 3 different times. Might be a keeper this time....... I bought a...

    Once again winter is upon us and instead of complaining about the cold, as I usually do, I figured I would provide the folks here on Tradtalk the benefits of my vast experience shooting in inclement weather. The topic today is how to dress. The biggest question I face at outdoor winter...

    I suppose someone has posted a thread about lining the back side of a metal-riser grip in cold weather. maybe you just use a good glove. Like many of you I have a number of metal risers and I don't like the feel of metal vs wood, leather etc. Just wondering if anyone has come up with something...

    Credit the Leatherwall Conduction is the physical process where heat is lost because you are touching something cold. So don't sit or lay on the bare ground, a large stone or a snow covered log. Put some insulation between you and it. be sure there is good insulation between your sleeping bag...

    My new bow just arrived, but the weather has also turned colder now too (-5F and clear). This got me to thinking, as the temperature drops everything gets more brittle, right? So at what temp should I put the bow away and wait for the weather to warm up? I'm worried that I might crack a limb...

I take paracetamol for the aching and shivers, pseudoephedrine hydrochloride for the blocked nose and a...
